Fantastic Cycling Holiday Cambodia

Go on a bike tour to get to know the towns between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh that many tourists never get to see. Cycle through rural communities, learn about Cambodian culture, and experience the untouched countryside on this 7-day bike adventure.

We cycle on the quiet back roads and jungle trails to explore the breathtaking temples of Angkor and the friendly Cambodian countryside, stopping along the minor roads to see different views of the country. We are not just cycling beneath towering fig trees among a thousand years of Khmer history at Angkor, but it also takes you through the inevitable provinces, where you can pedal safely along the single track and be greeted by the friendly and hospitable smiles of the Cambodian people.

Program

Day 1: Arrive in Siem Reap, cycle the Siem Reap backroads (Ride: 20 km)

Welcome to Siem Reap! Upon arrival at the airport, you will meet our driver and the English-speaking tour guide, who will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel to check in. You will have time to rest before starting your cycling at 2 pm.

In the afternoon, we will take you down interesting dirt roads to escape town and to experience local livelihoods. There are multiple scenic places where the tour will stop, including rice fields, rice mills, local markets, mushroom farms, and more. During this ride, we will stop and welcome you to try local fruits and snacks in the local village.

You will return back to town and take a break from touring to enjoy the creative local cuisine at Marum Restaurant (Marum is an NGO that has been working with street children and other marginalized young people).

  • Meal: Dinner | Hotel: Central Corner d'Angkor

Day 2: Siem Reap, pedal the Angkor Archaeology Park (Ride: 30 – 35 Km)

After breakfast at the hotel, you start biking the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with fewer crowds. First, you will visit Ta Prohm which is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found- overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the so-called Tomb Raider Temple, as it was used during the filming of the movie, one of the most picturesque and memorable temples of the Angkor complex.

You will then head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom and enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, located in the center of the city and famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.

You will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasteful Cambodian dishes.

Lastly, you will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your tour leader, you will be mesmerized by the rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterward, you will return to your hotel.

  • Meals: Breakfast & Lunch | Hotel: Central Corner d'Angkor

Day 3: Siem Reap, discover the Floating Village & Sunset Cruise (Ride 35 – 40 Km)

Today, discover the great landscape of the Tonle Sap lake by bike and boat. This is a unique experience offering a great outdoor adventure in Siem Reap’s countryside by exploring a floating village and enjoying a sunset cruise along the river.

This tour will take you to the charming backroads in order to explore the local ways of life in Siem Reap. You will be greeted by friendly locals and get a deeper understanding of their lives and traditions. The journey will end at the Tonle Sap lake, where you will experience the livelihoods of Cambodian people living in the floating villages, offering you the opportunity to see how families adapt their lives to living on the water. At the end of the day, we will watch the sunset on the lake with some snacks and cold beverages. You will return back to the city by private vehicle in the late evening.

  • Meals: Breakfast & Lunch | Hotel: Central Corner d'Angkor

Day 4: Siem Reap – Kampong Thom – Phnom Penh (Ride: 60 – 65 Km)

Today we cycled in the early morning to Kompong Thom and visited the temple of Sambor Prei Kok, one of the most important pre-Angkorian sites in Cambodia, soon to become the next UNESCO World Heritage Site. The temple was built in the Chenla period between the 6th and 7th centuries. After our guide leads a tour through the temples, we enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, we have a beautiful ride through rice paddies and small villages, with locals greeting us as we cycle by.

You then hop back into our van for a 4-hour transfer to Phnom Penh, the city is considered as one of the most beautiful cities as it still retains a colonial charm flat. Cambodia’s capital is the bustling city, majestically located at the confluence of the mighty rivers of the Mekong and Tonle Sap Lake. The city contains many colonial-era buildings that reflect the glorious days and add to the allure of the city where Asian and Western traditions meet in a fascinated way.

  • Meals: Breakfast & Lunch | Hotel: Frangipani Palace Hotel

Day 5: Phnom Penh City Tour (Today’s Ride: Free)

Departure to visit this incredible city. The first stop of the day will be Choeung Ek, better known as the "Killing Fields," where thousands of people were executed during the Khmer Rouge regime. The visits will continue with the genocide museum, "Tuol Sleng S21", which is the testimony of the Cambodian genocide of that historical period.

After the visit to the national museum, where exhibits dating from the Angkorian and pre-Angkorian periods of the glorious history of the ancient Khmer empire are displayed, the block adjacent to the museum is completely occupied by the royal palace complex, within which is also the "Silver Pagoda."

This afternoon, you will be treated to a relaxed lunch at a local Khmer-style restaurant, where you will have a chance to taste traditional Khmer cuisine.

  • Meals: Breakfast & Lunch | Hotel: Frangipani Palace Hotel

Day 6: Phnom Penh, cycle to Silk Island & Sunset Cruise (Ride:

  • 20 Km)

Today you escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and cross the river by ferry boat, making your way towards the north of Phnom Penh and the Silk Islands. After arriving on land, we will bike through orchards and vegetable farms, enjoying the peaceful farmland and learning about the lives of the people who call the Silk Islands home. Along the way, we will park our bikes for some interesting cultural stops as we check out traditional village industries and get a better sense of authentic Cambodian life on these islands. The cooling calm of the island is not only a great respite: it’s also a fun way to learn more about Cambodia’s silk weaving history, stroll through quiet villages, relax on the riverbank, or go for a dip.

In the afternoon, we enjoy lunch at a restaurant in the city. Your afternoon will be at leisure until you set off on a sunset cruise along the Phnom Penh riverfront. Take in the sights and sip cocktails, beer, or soft drinks as you get a unique overview of Phnom Penh.
